Benefits of Geothermal













 What Is Geothermal Heating & Cooling?

  • The most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly heating and cooling technology available today.

  • Does not “manufacture” hot and cool air the way most heating and cooling systems do.

  • Gets its energy from the earth, which remains nearly constant in temperature year-round.

  Why Geothermal?

  • A geothermal system can help save 30-40% on energy costs because it only takes a small amount of electricity to move heat through the heat exchanger and distribute it throughout the building.

  • A geothermal system is safer for the environment because it uses the earth’s natural energy instead of fossil fuels.  It also requires 25% less refrigerant than an air-to-air system and uses HCFC-22, a refrigerant with a very low ozone depletion factor.

  • A geothermal system provides maximum comfort because individual zone controls allow building occupants to adjust the temperature to their liking.

  • A geothermal system is quiet and aesthetically pleasing because all pipes are buried underground and no outside unit is needed.

  • A geothermal system is virtually maintenance-free because the pipes are underground, where there is no weather exposure to affect durability.  Many manufacturers guarantee the pipes for 25 years, but industry experts say a life span of 50 years can be expected.

  • Unlike other HVAC systems with outdoor units, and underground geothermal system is completely vandal-proof.

  • Government offices must meet government-mandated energy reduction goals.  STATE:  25% reduction by 1998  --  FEDERAL:  30% reduction by 2005
